To demonstrate your ability to gather, filter, and evaluate source material for your literature review
To complete this assignment, prepare an annotated bibliography. Each entry in an annotated bibliography consists of two elements: an initial citation in MLA format (see Ch. 16 of your e-handbook) and a 100 – 150 word evaluation of each source, in which you will evaluate the relevance, accuracy and quality of the source.The focus of your annotations should be on evaluating the quality of the sources, but your evaluation may also include a brief summary of key points of each source’s content. Your bibliography should contain a minimum of six annotated entries. Your sources should be scholarly or other reputable or credible articles located through the TTU library databases.
C1— Issue Identification and Focus
Has the student focused on evaluating the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source?
C2—Context and Assumptions
Has the student discussed the context in which the source appears? Has the student considered the assumptions which the author makes about the subject?
C3—Sources and Evidence
Has the student made effective and specific references to the source in order to support his or her discussion of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source? Are the citations correct?
Has the student clearly conveyed his or her opinion of the source’s relevance, accuracy, and quality?
How effective is the organization of the annotations? How effective is the student's writing at the sentence level?
Now…. Let’s look a good BA4.
